WASECA, Minn. -— The fish kill that left tens of thousands of black crappies dead in Clear Lake in southern Minnesota appears to be over.

Pathology tests show the crappies suffocated, but the DNR hasn't determined what caused them to suffocate.

Columnaris bacteria, a common bacteria found in shallow lakes in the summer, was detected in the fish, but scientists say that appears to be a secondary ailment. Columnaris is usually only blamed for the deaths of a few hundred fish.

DNR fisheries supervisor Todd Kolander says between 50,000 and 100,000 fish, or maybe more, died in Clear Lake. Officials estimate Clear Lake could have one million black crappies.

Pathology labs will run more tests to find a more specific cause for the die-off.
